Main Stage: SATURDAY 10
One of the most distinctive and innovative bands combining dance music and indie in the 2000s and 2010s, Hot Chip made their mark with the release of their 2000 debut, Mexico. Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard’s contrasting yet complimentary vocals are now instantly recognisable thanks to the wide acclaim the band have received.
In 2007 the Grammy nominated single Ready for the Floor heralded the arrival of Made in the Dark, which featured some of the band’s biggest hits to date – the album reached no. 4 in the UK album chart. The mellower One Life Stand followed in 2010, along with a remix collection later that year. Hot Chip released the more uptempo, experimental In Our Heads in 2012 and the band returned in 2015 with Why Make Sense?, which found them exploring sounds ranging from disco to ’90s R&B to post-punk.
